Hey the old girl is looking good Pezz well done.

I also have some cbx 550 carbs that I forgot to give you, do you think they may work on it.

Be back in a week-ish and bring some goodies down to ya then

Also if you would like a seat made for it I have an idea.


Cheers mate.

Well there has been some progress!

Picked up the swingarm for Jason@sinergycnc.com.au he did a great job and can turn out great work on his collection of CNC Mills and Lathes etc. Thanks Jason



Slipped the swing arm onto the pivot and then grabbed the shocks and the eyes lined up perfectly



Inserted the rear wheel, which will be getting a nice little knobbie shortly, then jacked up the rear end and Mounted the Ohlins.



The frame is level and the static seat height is about 900mm



Its looks great, off to buy some bushings for the shocks and finish this sucker

Cool. That's how I envisage mine looking but with USD forks.

But mine will be a DR400F

Thats a very nice peice of work! You've got to keep that CB tank though. Keen as to hear how well it works. It should make a nice little adventure bike.

Hmm - SL350 with a couple of extra cylinders and +100cc.
